I am almost ready to publish this new site for my guest house, Casa de Kathy.  I had professional help with some of the design.  Now I have to finish the content and let it fly.  All comments welcome.  I would like to know how to suppress the page titles appearing.
Kathy

Your new site is a great improvement on your old site.  I'm sure it create a great response (and conversion rate) from customers and people who find the new site.
A few thoughts:
I might suggest to raise the font size or modify the font color for your main navigation menu, because it seems to get a little lost between the rotating images and the "trip-advisor" testimonial.
Make sure that when you push the new site live that you have a good permalinks structure so that the page urls would be more descriptive instead of the ?page_id=18  etc.
On the individual rental property pages, I would put a "call-to-action" button, or a link that allows users to request information/rent the specific property.  Because right now when I'm on a property page (studio), if I "LIKE" that option, there's no option to pursue that option further.
On the page: http://66.147.244.166/~casadeka/?page_id=56  - It would be good to add some BOLD to parts of the text to help break it up and make it easier for the reader to read the content.

Just some thoughts after a quick glance at your good work...  Hope it helps.

Hi Ben:
http://66.147.244.166/~casadeka/
Thanks for your suggestions.  Did you mean to make the white menu font BOLD - I tried it but could do it. Instead I changed the hover colors on the menu - I like them better now (pink background).
On the Rental page I want to put a button instead of a link ( "Details and Rate chart").  I would also do a link or a button  that on the Studio and Two bedroom page as you suggest.  Where can I read how to place a button?  How can I put a button to the right of text instead of below it?
Thanks,  Kathy

Hi Kathy,
In your theme's style.css, locate
#pagemenu li a, #catmenu li a
and change
font-weight:normal;

to

font-weight:bold;

You can generate a button at http://dabuttonfactory.com/ and then use HTML to link the button image to where it should go.
See http://www.hyperlinkcode.com/html-image-hyperlink.php
